Vicsport Youth Advisory Committee

From 2022-2023 the Vicsport Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), with the support of VicHealth, tapped into the voices of young people in order to gain a better understanding of how to engage youth in sport.

Consisting of a diverse range of eight people aged 16-24 from both regional and metropolitan areas of Victoria, the Vicsport YAC represents and amplifies the voice of young people in sport.

The YAC met monthly to discuss topics such as how to make sporting environments safer and more inclusive for young people in Victoria and how to provide the best sporting experience for themselves and their peers.


Following the development and distribution of a survey and through conducting interviews with their peers, the Vicsport YAC developed their Youth Engagement Strategy 2022/2023. This document covers their key learnings, actions for sporting organisations to implement, and key themes from the data.

The Vicsport YAC launched the Strategy in July 2023, at an event that took a deep dive into youth engagement. Professor Rochelle Eime of PASI (Physical Activity and Sports Insights) also presented on the latest trends in youth sport.
